the obama administration strong sanctions have been put into place, and to date they have worked affecting the economy of iran. he said they've not stopped in deterring the nuclear program that that country is pursuing. he spent much of the speech setting the stage, talking about iranian aggression saying this is what we've seen in iran where they've turned on their own people without a nuclear weapon. what can the world expect if iran is able to obtain a nuclear weapon? an interesting note. he said in his remarks the middle east, europe and america would not be safe. >> yes. this presupposes that iran is not a rational actor or is sometimes described as death call. it's not clear. we've gone through this. i don't know if you were in the late 1990s and early 2000s we went through the same rhetoric with north korea. it it was unthinkable. the world would go through no effort and they couldn't trust them with a bomb, south korea could be destroyed although the touch the button. president clinton said north korea will never use that bomb, because if they do, it will be the end of north korea.
the obama administration insisted the assault was a protest that got out of hand. fox news confirmed u.s. intelligence did indeed know it was a terror attack of 24 hours of that evening. bill: yesterday the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff and the defense secretary finally statedding the obvious. >> it was a terrorist attack. as we determined details of what took place there and how that attack took place that it became clear there were terrorists who planned that attack. that's when i came to that conclusion. >> day after or was -- >> took a while to really get some of the feedback from what exactly happened at that location. >> there was a thread of intelligence reporting that groups in the environment in western, correction, eastern libya, were seeking to coalesce but there wasn't anything specific. bill: well, peter doocy is live in washington drilling down on the specifics. peter, if the administration knew it was terrorist attack in 24 hours, why did they not just say that? >> reporter: we heard from administration officials there is ongoing investigation and more details wi
, to the obama administration. >> i got to start off on something that was really troubling that occurred last night. did you watch that packer game last nig? i mean, give me a break. i half think that these refs work part-time for the obama administration in the budget office. trying to pick the winners and losers and they don't even do that very well. unlike the seattle seahawks last night,e wa toeshi victory. >> vice president joe biden meanwhile has beenle holding mock debate sessions with chris van holland and campaigned yesterday in the state of virginia, keeping romney's comments about the 47% in his line of attack. >> he attacks the 47 the american people who he says paid no federal taxes. and he attacks, he, romney, attacking someone on taxes? atike me attacking someone for being passionate in politics. >> also yesterday here in new york city, president obama addressed the united nations. the general assembly there. the president strongly condemning the anti-islamic ren th mide east, but he he also says it did not justify the attack on the united states embassy. >> i know there are so
and the obama administration is telling companies it is okay to disregard the law when it comes to handing out pink slips in advance to big budget cuts. all three happening before the election. mitt romney has finally put meat on the bones of his tax reform idea. he floated the idea of a $17,000 cap on tax reform reduction. >> you could say everyone is going to get up to a $17,000 deduction. you can fill that bucket if you will and higher income people might have a lower number. >> this is brand new stuff. we have howard dean former vermont governor and candidate. and let's look at this for a second. what do you think? a $17,000 cap on tax deductions for everybody as a way of being fair because the upper end would pay more. what do you think? >> i don't have a problem with the eidea of deductions. here you are. you guys are talking about the private sector all the time. so, i've been convinced because of the high rate of canadian home ownership, i'm not convinced of doing away with charitable deductions. $17,000 ceiling for all tax deductions across the board. sure, steve. the upper end people
would never know it by listening to the obama administration. we'll bring in fox all-stars in early. come on in. they're next. that timeline coming up. so, we all set? i've got two tickets to paradise! pack your bags, we'll leave tonight. uhh, it's next month, actually... eddie continues singing: to tickets to... paradiiiiiise! no four. remember? whoooa whooaa whooo! you know ronny, folks who save hundreds of dollars by switching to geico sure are happy. and how happy are they jimmy? happier than eddie money running a travel agency. get happy. get geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. >>> four years ago i said i'd end the war in iraq and we did. i said we'd wind down war in afghanistan in a responsible way and we are. yes, have a new tower across the new york skyline. al-qaeda on the bath to defeat. bin laden is dead. >> i was pretty certain and continue to be pretty certain that there will be bumps on the road. >> bret: obama has had bumpy weeks according to many especially with the situation in libya. we just had a statement out today. from the director of
, the obama administration. with all of that said, his speech boiled down to, there's an imminent threat. he compared it to the holocaust well,nd hels tt action must be taken within the next year it sounds. >> yeah. it will be interesting to see in the text day or two how the obama administration responds. we knew this red line speech was comi. wenew that the obama administration and netanyahu ecallyidee necessarily on the future actions to take. it's been abundantly clear obama has not appreciated having his hand forced by netanyahu. netanyahu has absolutely realized that this is an election season, has been accused probably rightly so of putingertaints u.s. election system to what he perceives to be his benefit. now that we know what the netanyahu red line is, it will be interesting to se how the obama admistration responds, whether or not it agrees. i have a sense that they will not appreciate having been is ?ed into y aee wh do you not agree? it's interesting to see what the white house does. >> thank you very much, jim. it's a pleasure to have your analysis. thank you. >>> we have more
not letting up the pressure now on the obama administration, as lawmakers have now sent a letter to james clapper demanding answers on benghazi attack. of considers, yesterday we were talking about james clapper. friday, his office coming out and basically staking responsibility for the intelligence failures. well, now, senator joe lieberman and others coming forward with this letter. >> alisyn: and also, who is going to take responsible for the tactffactactfufact-- spblt for three weeks later. 20 days past the september 11th attacks and fbi isn't in benghazi, they're in tripoli, for security reasons they say, they say that the libyan security forces aren't providing them with security and some sort of visa problem. this is unheard of. so, senator bob corker and joe lieberman among others, they want answers from clapper about why it's happening. >> dave: to the point at that tony schaeffer made on our program yesterday, he's worked with the fbi, some of the toughest and highly technically trained individuals on the planet. comfortable going into hostile zones like benghazi, it must not be
at the obama administration's evolving attempts to explain who's responsible for the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. is the confusion becoming a political liability? and mitt romney says he has a little secret. you're going to hear him predict he'll win a state most experts think is safely in president obama's column. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we're down to just 39 days until the presidential election. in about 20 minutes the president begins a series of fundraisers right here in washington. those are the only public events on his calendar today. yet this is the same day the president didn't have time for a face-to-face meeting with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who's in new york. instead they spoke by phone. here's cnn's white house correspondent dan lothian. dan. >> reporter: wolf, the white house always stresses that the president and prime minister netanyahu are in touch frequently. they downplay any daylight between the two leaders. but they didn't meet face-to-face this week. and so one phone call is getting a lot of attention.
. he points to the obama administration ideology being at fault both before the attack and afterwards. that's important to understand. before the attack we clearly didn't suspect it was coming. that's due to an intelligence failure in the sense we looked for information and couldn't get it or if the ideological reason applied they didn't think we needed to ask for the information. al qaeda has been defeated, the war on terror is over, libya is a great success, what could go wrong. obviously it did go wrong. but if the administration from the top down isn't processing reality, this is the kind of tragedy you get. bill: you are pinpointing the ideology. so this was their mental thinking about the condition of the arab world or that region or libya specifically do you think? >> i think very broadly. it goes to president obama's view of america's place in the world. it's a corollary to what he thinks america' domestic structure looks like. it made him in the case of libya and kay row and elsewhere -- libya and cairo and elsewhere in the region to see the islamists' rise. it was a brother
that the obama administration knew within 24 hours that the murder of the u.s. ambassador and three others in libya was a terrorist attack. and they labeled it that way internally. why didn't they tell the american people? here for a fair and balanced debate is former communications advisor to harry reid and republican strategist michelle seleski, thank you for being here. >> good to be here. >> alisyn: penny, start with you. how can the administration justify the misleading information they put out for the first two weeks about this benghazi attack? >> the information they put out there is based on the best intelligence they had at the time. often times in the initial assessment it's often imprecise and incomplete. and as they've learned that they've shared with the congress and american public. as it has evolved, as the intelligence director has says we will let people know, but this has been evolving thing and often times unclear as my former boss says in the fog of battle. we're learning as we're given. >> alisyn: michelle, do you agree it's the fog of war that led people leak jay carn
, gregg. gregg: all right. jenna: breaking news this hour. new criticism of the obama administration's handling of the deadly attack on our consulate in libya. some lawmakers are now claiming the white house misled them by calling the assault, a spontaneous protest that spun out of control. this after sources confirm that u.s. intelligence knew the attack was a terrorist attack within the first 24 hours. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridgewashington with more on this. catherine, when we say some lawmakers are making this claim we're referring to high-ranking republicans. what about the democrats? is this bipartisan this criticism in nature? >> reporter: it is now, jenna. good morn. late thursday we had a letter from the senate foreign relations committee, it is pa bipartisan letter and sent to the deputy secretary of state asking about more information in the security situation in benghazi and what they are doing to mitigate the threat and what they knew about the growing threat of al qaeda and islamist militias in the eastern libya. as well as the overrunning of the
enforcement one of the reasons why the obama administration embraced it, but it's all about how these things are represented and what they're obligated to say when your pants down. do you believe in enforcing these laws been problematic are not? and when you say -- the whole idea of the. >> translator: is that these aren't the good kids. many -- i think they're right. it doesn't mean that they're a bad kid. community college or maybe you have got in trouble when you're a teenager. i think there is something very disingenuous about the debate we have around us, but of course that is because advocates of destruction debate in the certain white. this is rooted in any kind of believes that our prior to the way that we actually structure the conversation. i think that advocates have structured the conversation very advantageous sleep. >> a couple more questions in the month to cut off. i was wondering if you could and testimonials in terms of looking forward toward the democratic party strength. >> and also the gentleman over there. >> thank you. thanks to the forum today. the panelists. i can gi
campaign for comment, but they did not return our calls. the obama administration has proposed revising estate planning rules. and one option would be ending this tax benefit. >> it would affect estate planning as we know it. this is something that is commonly done day in and day out and has been for many years. >> that liberal group americans for tax fairness action fund is now calling on release his gift tax returns. that will show more details on how much the couple gifted to their children and grandchildren over the years and how much they paid in taxes, wolf. >> lisa, thanks very much. >>> and you're in "the situation room." happening now, the israeli prime minister draws a chilling red line for iran at the united nations. does it mean military action is imminent? i'll ask the israeli ambassador to the united states this hour. also, syrian rebels scoring new victories on the battlefield thanks possibly to help from expats living right here in the united states. and a new twist in one of america's greatest unsolved mysteries. will drilling into a driveway finally uncover the remains
. he took a swipe at the obama administration by noting the current state of fairs overseas. >> syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim brotherhood. the ambassador to libya was killed in a terrorist attack. iran is moving toward flunuclea weapons capabilities. we feel like we're at the mercy of events rather than starting events. >> mr. romney reiterated that -- >>> it's the call everyone is talk about. packers versus seahawks. should the players union pull the members off the field to support the nfl referees? i'm barack obama and i approve this message. romney: "is time to stand up to the cheaters" vo: tough on china? not mitt romney. when a flood of chinese tires threatened a thousand american jobs... it was president obama who stood up to china and protected american workers. mitt romney attacked obama's decision... said standing up to china was "bad for the nation and our workers." how can mitt romney take on the cheaters... when he's taking their side? monarch of marketing analysis. with the ability to impr
the obama administration's reaction to the libyan attack, specifically blaming it on the video for ore a week really wasn't a fine moment for him. he should level with the american people. if you don't know anything, don't say anything. he can get traks. he made some missteps and so he was unable to take vax of that as much as he could. but he definitely can do so in the future. >> i want to bring in tom ridge. he's, of course, the former governor of pennsylvania. good to have you here. >> thank you for having me here. >> ann curry also talked to thi let me play that. >> what was your evidence that it was a preplanned attack of terrorism? >> number one was choosing the date, 11th of september. it has all the significance. if we take the facts about the way it was executed, you can see there's enough proof that it was a preplanned act of terrorism that help us to understand the importance of this phrase "act of terrorism," and why do you think the president won't say that, even though some members of his team, including his spokesman has? >> well, you ask me a great question to go into
't heard the obama administration do that yet. is that the issue right now? >> well, as the prime minister said to the general assembly today, wolf, the drawing of the red line is designed to give diplomacy and sanctions more time to work. we believe by drawing that red line you won't be increasing the chances of military engagement, you'll be significantly lessening the chances of a military engagement because the iranians have been presented with red lines in e past in trai of hormuz and they've backed down. we know they can see the color red. we're engaged in a conversation with the obama administratio about setting limits to iran's enrichment process because that's the part of the iranian nuclear program that we can actually see and mor. and that the part that's in facilities that areservle and are still lnerable. and so the obama administration's engaging with in a dialogue t it. you mention tt the secretary of state will be meeting with the prime minister this evening. thidengt willalking netanyahu tomorrow. th p of an ongoing dialogue that we've had to reach an understanding about
are making is that for political reasons the obama administration downplayed this notion of this being an act of terror, pre-planned, any association with al qaeda. they were just wanting to show it's not happening on the president's watch. and they couldn't be blamed for this, if you will, the shotty if you will security that was at that consulate in benghazi. >> wolf, it may take some weeks now to get to the bottom of that. and whether or not that was -- it was dick kated by politics the initial response. we see today senator john kerry, aemocrat the senate asking the right questions. these are questions that others memberenof thee and house are also sking. so ihi you ought to expect we will see extensive hearings and investigation on this>> now the week that f agents who have bnt tselibya to investigate, they still have not beenble to get to the scene of thisro actionn bengzi. they're basically holed hundreds of miles away in tripoli, the capital. you have new information? >> that's right, wolf. so you've got a handful -- u've got some fbi agents in tripoli waiting todeploo benghazi. yove
that will say in the first two years of the obama administration, there was democratic control of both houses of congress, and the president had a hard time getting his legislative agenda passed. caller: it's because the filibuster in the senate, i mean, when you need 60 votes and the democrats only had 59, so he had a hard time getting even healthcare through. host: all right, paul, we're going to move to andy on our line from independents, calling from florida. caller: sorry, i'm calling from south carolina. host: ok, andy is calling from south carolina where. in south carolina, andy? caller: columbia. host: ok. are you in favor of divided government or one party? caller: well, i'm not so sure i'm in favor of either one, unless -- except if divided government is going to give us what it's given us now and nothing gets done, nothing gets passed. we got a credit rating downgraded because one party says my way or the highway. that's not good governance. it's not -- there's no such thing as my way or the highway. we all have to compromise, you know, in a marriage, the husband doesn't get everyt
the murder of four americans in libya. and questions over how the obama administration is handling intelligence in that terror attack. a reminder now two navy seals, an embassy staffer and our u.s. body, christopher stevens, died in that attack, and top republicans in the house and senate are now demanding more information. including specific communications between the embassy and our ambassador and the state department prior to those murders. fox news chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is live in washington with more. catherine, what are we learning now about these new letters? >> reporter: thank you, megyn. fox first obtaining this letter sent by the head of the house intelligence armed services appropriations judiciary and foreign relations committees, significantly they have oversight on this issue. it says they are, quote: disturbed by the public statements made by members of the administration that would lead the american public to believe this attack was a protest gone wrong. we stand to return to washington. and right after that briefing thursday by the sec
increased an we're not learning. a good time line of the obama's administration evolving statements on libya from saying it wasn't planned to now acknowledging it was an act of terrorism. the most charitable explanation of these resolving statements is information the administration received has changed or wasn't complete or the most uncharitable is the white house was slow to admit it was terrorism due to the upcoming election and sending out u.n. ambassador susan rice to morning shows days after the attacks saying we do not have information at present that leads us to conclude that this was premeditated or preplanned. by the way, you have to wonder if obama wins re-election is rice's chances of being secretary of state are collateral damage from all of this simply because senate republicans may want someone to go after if they end up losing the big enchilada. >>> critics of the voter i.d. law will take the stand today to convince the judge that the provision is unworkable. they'll hear from witnesses who say the state hasn't adequately prepared the public for what's coming. pete williams i
it know it and when and how was the obama administration informed. just in to cnn, the national intelligence director is addressing both issues. let's get right to cnn intelligence correspondent suzanne kelly in washington. >> this has been something of a political football thrown around for a couple of weeks now as people try to nail down what happened, when intelligence officials knew it, and this is the fullest accounting yet we're getting now from the office of the director of national intelligence on exactly what they knew and when. i want to read to you from a statement by shawn turner, the director of public affairs for the odni's office. he said in the immediate aftermath there was information that led us to assess that the attack began spontaneously following protests earlier thie day at our embassy in cairo. we provided that initial assessment to executive branch officials and members of congress who use that formation to discuss the attack publicly. now, the problem, of course, began when did people know that this was planned, when did they realize that this actually
with the explanation the obama administration has offered you on what happened i benghazi? >> i'm on the intelcommittee. i think it is very aropriate tll of theacts before they rush to judgment. and i think there are still facts that need to be uncovered. if they would have rushed the other way and then proven not to be the case in a terrorist attack, they would have been attack forhat as well. >> looking at what suse said on sunday shows in hindsight, that was a mistake? >> you dealith the facts that you have at the time. and i still think there are still facts to be uncovered in terms of certain time lines. th is a dangerous parf wo end the day we know that we've got to do a better job going forward of protecting our diplomatic personnel wherever they were in the world. >> you don't believe you were misled? >> i think as the facts come out, thedministratiois going wa t hreho out tus. my colleagues want to hear more. i can assure you this took place in a part of the world where i wish we would have had more intel but i think there is a real danger in rushing to judgment before you get all of the fact
40 people were questioned. remember the obama administration said the attacks were linkked to protest and were spontanous . said it was self evident what happened in benghazi a terrorist atack. toss to steve. >> steve: thank you, brian. it was supposed to go to a sick person but a good kidney wound up in chicago. the nurse accidentally threw the kidney in the garage and didn't realize it was put in sterile solution. it was poor oversight. one nurse was fire another nurse resigned over the incident. >> gretchen: want to keep your welfare benefits. keep your students in school. if they miss more than 10 days of class. family checks are cut off. critics say it is. >> i think it is very unfair and very stupid. i mean, it doesn't make sense. >> it matters, if you are not going to school and doing what you are supposed to with your kids, how is the future going to work. >> new rules start in october 1st. there is a plan to get benefits back once the kids turn to school. >> brian: another look at stupid criminal file . an 18 yore old attempting to car jack this porsche. after seeing a police

creation. 4 million jobs created after the first year of the obama administration, legitimate issue to say he is making progress. on foreign policy, i think it should be an issue of what we just discussed. but i think it will be laid in the context of the president not only having stopped the war in iraq, gone and violated pakistani air space, which wasn't done before, and getting al qaeda in pakistan, that's bin laden and putting it in the context of 12 embassies attacked in the 8 years of the bush administration and losing a u.s. diplomat in pakistan and our president recognizing that we have to shift our focus, not just in the global war on terror, but to dhiena. i think this may take a bit of luster off, but overall, i think it's quite a good step that he has taken for america, securing our peace and prosperity. >> eric: that's the final word. >> thank you for having me. >> eric: thank you both. >> jamie: major development in the showdown over iran's nuclear program. the economic sanctions are stinging hard with the israeli finance minister, saying iran's economy is paying a heavy pric
not know what that means, but clearly that would be uncomfortable. in reality, the obama administration has said it will consider proposals from states aimed at finding better ways of getting welfare recipients into jobs. factcheck.org and the washington post fact checker have said the same, that the claim is false. [applause] what do you say? >> allow me to respond. >> the truth tour begins tonight. [laughter] >> i should have set that up to point out that the beginning of that was hermann cain maintain the same point the romney campaign had, that the obama administration is getting rid of the work requirement. what i thought that showed was the importance of fact checkers in this campaign. i really think, and brandon and glenn and i were talking about how things are different this time compared to 2008. there is more fact checking than ever, and the fact checking has a much greater prominence this time. candidates are being asked about it. i got a call from cnn last night -- they had asked mitt romney in a interview about how the fact checkers had looked at that and other ads. this year,
uncovered and it's raising questions about what the obama administration knew about the volatile situation going on in bengazy. the writings found four days after he and three other americans were killed in an attack. cnn reports the journal mentions quote the rise in islamic extremism and al qaeda's growing presence if libya and revealed stevens believed he was on a hit list. we know he was on the list and tonight what we don't know is who else the ambassador told about concerns and why nothing was done to ensure his protection. because one thing is certain if an american ambassador took the time to put down and put into writing he is in fear for his life he likely expressed concerns to his colleagues at the state department and throughout the administration. where are the letters and where are the e mails? in other words what is the administration trying to hide? secretary of state hillary clinton asked about this report as it began to develop last week. let's take a look at this. >> there is one report suggesting that ambassador stevens felt that he was on a qorkts al qaeda hit list. sf
debate at the heart of the presidential race, which is, going forward, this is the obama administration's tagline. they would say let's let the agency do its job. the republican position is is ill-advised and we would like kill it or change it. host: how widespread is predatory lending these days and what is the agency currently doing about? about guest: predatory lending is deceptive lending practices o. it is extremely widespread. if you pick up a credit card application, you will see dozens of pages of fine print that is hard for anybody to really get through and most people don't even try. there are teaser rates, for instance, a lower rate on credit cards in a short amount of time that would triple or quadruple and they don't tell you that the upfront. it's in the fine print. it's very widespread. almost the essence of the new agency is to and changed the terms of debate so that predatory lending is very hard for companies to get away with, so that they have to make their money helping people save and invest and advance themselves financially rather than the way the system now is. s
what sticks. we've seen that the past week or so with their criticism of the obama administration regarding foreign policy decisions specifically what happened over in libya and with the ambassador being killed over there. we're seeing here now that they realize it doesn't pay to be outwardly partisan. in that ad we just saw, you heard mr. romney say that president obama cares for the middle class and poor people as i do. of course he does. and of course mitt romney does. anyone that thinks otherwise would be rather jaded. but the fact of the matter is what mitt romney is trying to convey is is that his policies will be better. you might like president obama as a person, carol, but his policies haven't worked for the past four years. >> some republicans think that's not such a good strategy. they think that mitt romney should be just as hard on president obama as he has been in the past and the softening of issues only confuses republican voters, especially core voters. >> it's not his job to be outwardly partisan. he's supposed to be the states man. he's the one supposed to be ta
. the state filed a lawsuit against the obama administration to get access to the homeland security database which is considered the best information available on citizenship. but this pro skes is just well already becse i'm talking to county election supervisors today who are upset t names they got last night or the names they're getting include people who have already been removed from the roles last spring. >> why does it matter? 198 names seem to be a small number to have this political fight continue. >> an extremely small number. it's largely because the governor here, rick scott, has made this a very important priority. he has said that a vote by a noncitizen should not die lut the vote of a legitimate voter. this issue polls very well people when asked about this are adamant. they don't think noncitizens should be voting, but in reality very few noncitizens have ever voted in a florida election from the data from what we can see. >> clearly this has a political impa here as well. the report that the new list essentially was dominated with hispanames and key political counties like da
this country, religious up and down this country who believe that the obama administration rightly has leveled a direct attack on their ability to be catholic. that is not going to pass unnoticed in states like ohio, michigan, pennsylvania where the catholic vote is huge and motivated and not happy with president obama. secondly, that chick-fil-a story , this has just begun to roll out, but everyone already knows about it. .. >> the third story i asked about was the 1.5% gdp growth, the horrible growth number, and, again, less than half a percent. the chick-fil-a story was just a day ole. everybody heard about chick-fil-a. it was one of those stories that moves by social media, by e-mail, by tfn, and conversation about the church peat owe, in a group like this, or your friends, and it outrages people. it outrages even supporters of same-sex marriage. it outrages, as i had on the radio show today, gay people. they don't want people bullied over their religious faith, and when rahm tries to beat up the keys of chick-fil-a or the mayor of boston or san fransisco, those are democrat friends of the
with china they are likely to fail. they have been bashing the obama administration over the lack of green jobs created despite billions of taxpayer dollars spent. >> it's terrible. it's a program that shouldn't exist even if the risk is low, it's not a proper function of government to be venture capital firm. >> reporter: we've learned solar power's president donated $30,000 to help president obama get elected in 2008. >> shep: crews worked to help folks stranded in flash floods in one of nation's first september storm in three decades. that tops our news around the world in 80 seconds. >> united kingdom, days of heavy rain submerged cars and washed away the foundations to several homes. a river bursted the bank near the welsh border. high water may have killed a couple whose bodies turned up in wales. they have urged the government to set up a fund to could have millions of dollars in damage. >> austria, a mayor's proposal to turn adolf hitler's childhood home into an apartment building. it sparks controversy. the current owner rents the building to the state. oh phones of the apartment
. they are being buried by regulatio regulations, by taxes, by borrowing, they are being buried by the obama administration's economic failures. >> the romney campaign is taking remarks out of context. alex, will it work or is it just desperation? >> i think it's a real mistake whenever the romney campaign tries to play on the same field as the president and joe biden. nobody is a better surrogate, speaks more to the pain of the working and middle class than joe biden. don't even go there, paul ryan. that straight to camera shot, you saw both campaigns come out with ads. president obama is a much better speaker. he's more direct and communicates warmth and honesty. from mitt romney it seems hollow. if i were the romney campaign, i would stay with the fix it thing. do everything short of coming out with mops and brooms and talk about the economy. whenever they try to play the genuine american attack, it never works for them. they fall flat and it always rings hollow. >> alex, richard, great to have you with us on "the ed show." >>> coming up, the obama campaign released a new ad hammering mit
